Funny Face

My children have watched that episode where Daffy Duck draws mustaches on people one too many times.

This is Bethany's sad face.

This is Bethany's ... I'm not sure what this face is, but it makes me laugh!

This is Abby doing her Popeye face.

I think today is the first day of fall! I'm starting to like fall more as the years go on. I am a spring lover. Fall reminds me of death. So here is one of the last flower pics to enjoy.

Abby makes me laugh. Except when she and Anna are fighting. Then I'm not laughing. She misses Tommy being away at school, so I've been taking her to the store with me when I go. She was afraid I couldn't find the way out of Menard's the other day. I love how concerned she gets.

The bees are loving the sedum right now.

Bethany eats a lot and needs to sit in her car seat to stay propped up while I make supper. And supper was just hot dogs and beans tonight since I had my dental implant placed today and didn't feel like doing anything major. I'd really like to go lay down right now, but Bethany is screaming on my lap. She LOVES the night time. Not really. Tommy will tell you all about her "grumpy" time, which sometimes lasts til midnight. But then she'll sleep 4 or 5 hours, so I'm good with that.

First Day

The first day went very well for everyone! Rachel is in 3rd grade, Adam's in 2nd, and Tommy started kindergarten. I was rather put off that he sent me away this morning with nary a tear, just "Go home, Mom". But when I showed up this afternoon to pick him up I received big hugs, just as Pam predicted! So I am still loved.

All day kindergarten wears a kid out the first few days. Here is meltdown #2- Rachel ate the last orange popsicle. OH NO. Meltdown #1 happened right in the parking lot at school when he realized we were walking home. He was tired. I carried him piggy-back half way home. I really need to start working out.

All is right with the world again.
